The Friday Four, Part 62 - Sweet Child o' Mine Edition

Occasionally, I find it amusing to dig around on youtube for various versions of well-known songs.  Here are some of the most entertaining covers I've found of Guns N' Roses "Sweet Child o' Mine".


Miche Braden gives "Sweet Child o' Mine" a fabulous bluesy, jazzy, New Orleans Style treatment here.  I love the instrumentation with the brass and the clarinet:


I have a huge girl-crush on Sheryl Crow and she nails this cover:


I usually find Gregorian chants very soothing, but this one takes the cake for the most unlikely arrangement of the song:


For the complete polar opposite of Gregorian chant, and, I think, the least recognizable version of the song, here's the electronica cover by Akasha.


And finally, here's a Brazilian bossa band with a sweet, mellow arrangement.  Extra points for the use of the flute on the famous guitar solo riff.
